Killed all Uniques~

Mudd IV has now killed all uniques except Sauron and Morgoth.

Osse didn't want to show up for quite awhile, but I was so close to getting them all I kept hunting.

I'd like to be doing better damage, but no matter how much I try it seems my best equipment is as is.

Always open for equipment advise before I go after the top 2.

Use the Holy Might arrows on Morgie and the others on Sauron; you will do plenty of damage,

One unique you might not have gotten, Father Christmas, but he only shows up once a year.

I saw the red hatted elves several times....but Father Christmas never showed. It was disappointing, but maybe because I killed all his elves?

One thing I'm still not sure of and have seen debated around here - which bow should I carry int o the final fight as a Ranger....Belthronding,Bard, or even the Lothlorien I have at home?

I've stuck with Belthronding up till now as it is my source of rDisenchant and my gut tells me to stick with it.

My usual answer. . . it depends. . . . You can wield each bow and compare both your best ammo and, by using the menu and the look command, you can access the general store and compare ordinary ammo, even when you are in the dungeon. But, as you point out, rDis can be worth having. It's up to you to decide which you think is best for your given situation.

Unless you're fighting the Tarrasque, rDis is merely a nice-to-have, especially as a ranger. Even with a warrior or paladin who opts to face-tank all the monsters that have melee that can disenchant, you're not looking at any serious amount of equipment damage, between the monster missing their attacks and artifacts having a decent chance of resisting being disenchanted. Rangers don't even have that to worry about. So the only really important thing about disenchantment is mitigating the damage done by breathers...of which the Tarrasque is the only one of note.

My Himring got disenchanted twice while meleeing Mīm. I realize that it doesn't matter much since it's just AC, but it is an artifact and seemed to get targeted over other equipment I was wearing. Hithlomir got disenhanted once in another game while fighting a similar dwarf. Are weapons more resistant to disenchanting than armors?

Nope. You're seeing patterns that don't exist. Humans are very good at that.
